HP Proliant & I/O Accelerators issues

Hi,

 

I physically installed i/o Accelerators into my DL980s hardware running RHEL5.4 OS and Win 2008 server OS respectively: 

 

1- How woud I know that the drivers and related software are correctly installed ?

 

2- How would I configure it to improve performance ?

 

3- How and what software or command would I use to monitor i/o performance statistiques ?

 

Best Regards,

Yaboto

Hello Yaboto,

1)  & 3) locate and install drivers pack for io accelerator for youe OS:

a) rh: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=4268505&spf_p.tpst=psiSwdMain&spf_p.prp_psiSwdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Dlang%253Den%257Ccc%253DUS%257CprodSeriesId%253D4231377%257CswItem%253DMTX-58e9f4e110be4c63a7040ab7b3%257CprodNameId%253D4268505%257CswEnvOID%253D4004%257CswLang%253D8%257Cmode%253D3%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCache...

 

b) win2008 r2: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=4268505&spf_p.tpst=psiSwdMain&spf_p.prp_psiSwdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Dlang%253Den%257Ccc%253DUS%257CprodSeriesId%253D4231377%257CprodNameId%253D4268505%257CswEnvOID%253D4064%257CswLang%253D8%257CswItem%253DMTX-d14c05e7cbd947e8837a75406b%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignett...

 

this package includes everything needed for accelerator.

 

2) configuration - first you have to created partitions/luns on it. Usage - it depends what you use on servers and what you expect. It could by suitable as lun for very I/O intensive parts of DB - like temp db for oracle/ms sql, swaps space etc. - simply everything which requests really high iops.

Of course - if you budget is lets say unlimited or your DB is small, place whole DB on such SSD lun.
